I invested in the Foolish Four several months ago when Sears was one of the chosen. Since then it has fallen
alot and is no longer a Dow stock.
What is the Fools' advice on what to do with Sears?

My Reply:
Currently, I have an F4 portfolio that I bought in August. It contains Goodyear, Kodak, GM & Sears (and none of them are a very pretty sight!!!). This port is considerably down from its purchase price, but it's important to understand that I bought an investment process or concept, not individual stocks. My plan is to be true to the concept and hold until the anniversary date. Then I will: a). Sell and adjust as per the plan. b). Continue to hold until December, 2000, then sell and adjust. c). Sell on the anniversary date and find a better investment vehicle!!! I do not plan to panic and bail out before the anniversary date.

I am now inclined to select option b). and quit looking at the day to day stock prices!

It's important to know that this F4 represents only 5% of my total portfolio.
